The video, entitled simply Family Mediation, sets out ways in which mediation can help couples going through divorce or separation – for example, helping to resolve disputes over childcare and residence, maintenance and other financial matters.
The three minute video uses a simple animation style reminiscent of children’s cartoons, representing divorcing families as birds on rooftops, jostling between chimneys and TV aerials.
The message is a straightforward one:
Arguing about who gets what?
Can’t agree on arrangements for the kids?
Mediation can help…
Mediation is, viewers are told, about “talking things through and agreeing arrangements for the future”.
